Just as was the case for other diseases, the connection between COVID-19 and exposure to electromagnetic fields could have remained unnoticed.

However, the Doctrine of the innocuity of electromagnetic waves, which is the theoretical basis for rejecting effects of electromagnetic fields on health, is no further adhered to by a majority of implied scientists (this doctrine is the belief in the absence of non-thermal effects and other similar beliefs). Its abandonment was validated by more than 240 scientists (see ) for whom “EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines” (these guidelines are based on the on the Doctrine of Inocuity of Electromagnetic fields). Even the most conservative organisms mark an increasing distanciation from the Doctrine of Innocuity of Electromagnetic Waves. For example, in France the ANSES (the government agency in charge of public health) recommends to decrease children’s exposure to electromagnetic fields.

The abandonment of the “Doctrine of the inocuity of electromagnetic waves” implies that  COVID-19 issues must now be dealt with with the openness of mind which this change of perspective implies, using all available scientific knowledge, rather than only such knowledge which was found acceptable within the Doctrine of the innocuity of electromagnetic waves. In particular it is necessary to take into account the precedent of Poliomyelitis, a disease for which the historical link with exposure to electromagnetif fields is particularly straightforwward (see or for a more precise account ). This precedent renders highly probable a connexion between the COVID-19 pandemy and exposure to electromagnetic fields.

The understanding  of COVID-19 under usual scientific approaches (still based on the Doctrine of inocuity of electromagnetic waves) is  limited to its near “mechanical” aspect: a virus (SARS-COV-2) is present, it causes the disease through mechanisms which imply a dysfunctioning of the immune system. COVID-19 essentially affects the lungs and the nervous system, and as of today most deaths are due to respiratory distress. But the logic behind the pandemy, which determines the impressive differences between different countries or even between different regions of the same country, is not understood under this strictly mechanistic approach.
